Product Highlights

  • (4) CAT-5 Outputs as DVI or HDMI
  • Only (1) Frame of Latency
  • NTSC / PAL Compatible

The Apantac LE-16CV Sixteen Input Analog Composite Multiviewer is a multiviewer with 16 BNC inputs for analog composite video and four CAT-5 outputs that can carry either DVI or HDMI (full 10-bit; 1.2 or 1.3). The LE-16CV auto-detects the 16 input signals as NTSC or PAL, and it can group them for output as 4/4/4/4 to four displays, 4/4/8 to three displays, 8/8 or 12/4 to two displays, or all 16 to a single display.

Output resolution can be up to 2048 x 1080, with an option for 1920x1080p. Each CAT-5 video output features a built-in CATx extender, so you can extend 1080p signals (as DVI or HDMI) up to 115 ft with optional active receivers (not included). The LE-16CV introduces only a single frame of processing delay, making it appropriate for crucial monitoring functions or as a component in an IMAG (live video display) system.

The multiviewer has many features, such as GPI tally support and built-in timecode and clock display, that make it well-suited for monitoring multiple sources in environments such as broadcast newsrooms and OB vans. The LE-16CV can output multiple labels per video window, including UMD, OMD, IMD, and standalone labels. There's also support for serial and Ethernet control for integration into large video systems.
